Do I need Planning Permission to ....?

The Duty Officer service is available every afternoon from 1pm to 4.45pm Mon to Thurs and 1pm to 4:15pm Fridays.

Do I need permission to do works to my house?

Most dwellings (excluding flats) have Permitted Development Rights which allow you to do small works without applying for planning permission.  However sometimes these have been removed.

You can use the Interactive House on Planning Portal - do I need planning permission? to see what needs permission and what can be done under Permitted Development Rights

You will need to know the following which you can find by using My Neighbourhood and entering your address and clicking on the blue MyNeighbourhood Map link:

  • if you live in a Conservation Area
  • if you have a Listed Building
  • if your Permitted Development Rights have been removed

A previous planning permission may also have restrictions e.g. preventing the conversion of a garage to living accommodation etc.  You can view previous decisions at www.teignbridge.gov.uk/planningonline

Until 30 May 2019 there is a temporary Householder Prior Approval scheme for rear extensions between 4 and 8 metres for detached dwellings and 3 and 6 metres for other dwellings.  All other criteria still have to be met and full details are available on the Planning Portal - New guidelines for rear extensions

You may also need to contact Devon Building Control Partnership about Building Regulations Consent for your project.

If your property is listed, you may also need listed building consent.  You can email designandheritage@teignbridge.gov.uk for further advice on listed buildings.
